Sunrise run on the sand to help you seize the day? A bike ride on the Boardwalk to combat boredom? Atlantic City is the spot for adventures that make the most of your own two feet.
If you’re a runner, it’s hard to find a spot in the city that doesn’t feature a gorgeous ocean view while running the beaches of Atlantic City as far as your legs will carry you. Competitive runners should sign up for Atlantic City Marathon Race Series in October & April which includes a 26.2 mile marathon, a 13.1 half-marathon, and more!
Feeling like you want to step up your endurance game? Then you will want to check out TRI AC or IRONMAN 70.3.
If you’d prefer to see Atlantic City with pedal power, check out an Atlantic City bike rental or bring your own and cruise up and down the 5-mile Boardwalk between 6AM and 12 Noon from Connecticut to Albany Avenues. Bike riding is also permitted Labor Day through July 1 from 4PM – 7PM. From Albany to Bartram Avenues, the hours are 6AM to 12 Noon on Saturdays and Sundays from July 1 through Labor Day, and 24-hours all other days. 24-hour bicycling is also permitted from Connecticut Avenue to Gardner's Basin year-round. There are shops to browse, views to admire and plenty of eateries to enjoy. Biking is also a great way to get around town and take in Atlantic City’s true atmosphere.
